Based on a lot of projects we have worked on, we recommend to use the Mexican decorative tiles as accents and use a field tile which is usually a solid color. Adding accents such as borders, diamond-shaped spots, or frames is the best conservative choice. Attached are a few pictures that you can review and have as references.

The main reason why we don’t recommend Mexican tile inside pools is because chlorine destroys the clay. Most of the Mexican tile is handmade and hand-pressed, and as such its hardness might not be as strong as a compressed version of it. It can be used as decorative option inside showers, backsplashes, counter-tops, bathrooms, kitchen, outdoor BBQs, fountains, floor accents and more.
